Charge Nurse Intensive

Update 03/20/2020:
The Charge Nurse Intensive is currently on hold until the CDC approves and government will allow renewed large group meetings and the NWONL Leadership, the Hosting Organization and Corporate Partners all agree on a future date that is optimal for all stakeholders. 

Amplify Your Charge Nurse Capabilities in 2020

Vital capabilities of an effective Charge Nurse center on having a clear understanding of the role's scope and developing adaptive leadership skills to flex as situations and stakeholders needs demand. The NWONL Charge Nurse Intensive is an in-person, interactive and engaging workshop to help your Charge Nurses navigate managing peers, collaborating with providers, overseeing unit flow, while keeping patients at the center of care and safeguarding their needs.

Charge Nurses leave with actionable tools and tactics plus a self-directed personal action plan for immediate use plus for continual improvement prioritized around their individual needs.

NWONL's  curriculum is evidence based, supported by best-practice and focuses on the intersection of both Charge Nurse and senior nursing management organizational needs and is delivered by Nurse Leaders for Nurse Leaders.
